Rays 2014 concert series: Weezer, O'Jays, Imagination Movers, Wiggles announced for free concerts



The Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday unveiled the initial lineup for its seventh annual Summer Concert Series. And apparently they're big fans of Pinkerton.

Weezer will perform at Tropicana Field on Saturday, June 7, following the Rays and Seattle Mariners. Soul favorites the O'Jays (Love Train, Back Stabbers) will take the stage following the Rays and Houston Astros on June 21.

Two kid-friendly acts are scheduled for late summer: Imagination Movers will perform a "Christmas in July" concert on July 27 following the Rays and Boston Red Sox (they're also giving away a Chris Archer Christmas stocking that night), and the Wiggles on Sept. 7 following the Rays and Baltimore Orioles.

Plenty more concerts are sure to be added in the coming months, so keep your eyes peeled here for more. (We're especially curious to see who'll play on Sept. 6, when the giveaway is an Evan Longoria '80s hair metal bobblehead. Poison? Whitesnake? Guns N' Roses?!)

The concerts are free with your ticket to each game -- and lucky you, you can purchase season tickets and flex passes at this Saturday's Rays Fan Fest at Tropicana Field. (Individual tickets go on sale March 1.) Click here for details on that.
